PRIVATE UNI GRADUATE SAYS $3K STARTING SALARY IS SAME AS 10 YEARS AGO, TOO LOW

Private uni graduate salary 2022 Hi all, is being offered $3k for an office executive job low for a private uni graduate? With today’s market and inflation, eg. A salary of $3k – cpf= $2400 (take-home pay).

How to survive? Is it unreasonable to ask for a higher range of salary? Graduates 10 years ago are already earning this amount or more.

The older folks used to say going to uni would ensure you find a better paying job but it doesn’t seem to be the case maybe because everyone’s a uni graduate now.. STRESS.

A degree is not everything

Uni cert dun guarantee u a high salary. There is plenty of it outside. U dun wan, more ppl wan it…

The world is going into recession. Can you afford not to have a job?

You dun take, others who are more keen/hungry will. If you think you can wait for a better offer, that is.

Here are what netizens think:

  • Hi there, honestly if you’re a fresh graduate, just take what you can get. Firstly, build up your CPF! Secondly, beef up ur resume , work hard & get glowing testimonials for your next career move. Think of it as an investment in your future success. As¬†you said, everyone has a degree nowadays.. so what makes you special? Unique Selling Point or USP.. Marketing 101. Perhaps you are good at comms, or even digital marketing. If you sit around waiting for the right offer, your USP is getting dusty with no one to discover them. Everybody starts somewhere. BTW, I raised 3 teen boys since 2016 as a single mum with my own household on a salary of less than 2k.. so its not impossible. I managed to upskill thru part-time poly & then with a pte uni.. all while putting in my best at work. It has paid off as I was recently promoted. If you are starting out with minimal commitment, you should be ok.Your attitude determines your altitude
  • My first take home pay was 800 dollars. In fact my army pay as an officer was more than my first job’s pay haha. And I worked my way up. There’s so much more than the starting pay to consider for a first job. Does it get you the exposure and experience¬†you need? Does the work culture have any red flags? Are they an organization that has opportunities to upgrade your skills and diversify your qualifications? These will influence your career much more than your starting pay. All the best in your career path! Dont focus on the near term and lose sight of the potential for growth!
  • Time has totally changed and you are still comparing with 10 years ago?? Nowadays uni grad is everywhere, moreover you are just on a pte uni (unless your pte uni is super recognised and reputable).
  • $3k not bad leh.. i went overseas uni and starting pay was $1.8k leh last time.. you need to find somewhere to gain exp and work your way up ma..
